Car Rental South Africa FAQ

Is it cheaper to hire a car from the airport?
Normally, Yes. This is because there is a bigger selection of cars at the airport as well more firms to choose from. It's always worth getting quotes for city pickups too though particularly if having car at the airport is not essential.
Is it worth it to get car rental excess insurance?
Yes, absolutely! It's costs very little and offers great peace of mind.
Which rental cars are cheapest for those under 25?
You will have to pay a young driver surcharge if under 25 in most countries. This is unfortunate but at a young age you are seen as higher risk. Hiring a small car will probably be your best option as larger vehicles can sometimes be restricted to over 25's
